Apple just announced on the front page of the iPhone development site, that they have decided to discontinue the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) that has prevented developers from speaking openly about programming on the iPhone.

Apple says “the NDA has created too much of a burden on developers, authors and others interested in helping further the iPhone’s success, so we are dropping it for released software.”

Apple will issue a new agreement to any developers who previously released software that will not contain any NDA clauses.  This will help the piles of books that are waiting to get published, on the best and most proper way for aspiring developers to program applications on the iPhone. You should expect to see plenty of new and innovative applications coming out in the future now that there is open collaboration.

This is a major step for apple and one that I commend them on.  Guess all that nagging actually worked guys!  Wonder if it had anything to do with the gPhone having no NDA!

    Apple's flagship product (the iPhone) could only be found at a few large retailers which includes AT&T, Best Buy, and Apple Stores. Now, it looks like the crew is adding a new member to their team, Wal-Mart. According to the article, Wal-Mart is rumored to be offering the iPhone's 4 GB model by December 15th, for the price of $99. This would allow holiday shoppers a chance to buy before Christmas. Other rumors, however, place the release date to December 28th and instead of the 4gig model it is expected to be the 8 GB model, which is said to be sold at $197. As usual, Wal-Mart’s ambition to provide consumers the lowest prices on consumer products and merchandise will of course kick in. Rumor has it that they will have the iPhone on the counter for two dollars less than any other retailer, which may not seem like much of a discount. But when you think of it, any savings is better than no savings at all. Obviously, Apple wants to take advantage of the daily foot traffic at each of Wal-Mart’s locations, but will not want to overstep its other established retailers by undercutting them. Since their sales have not been where they would like them to be, Wal-Mart will most likely make a good profit from the deal since it will help boost their consumer electronic sales. They are taking major steps and have brought in a third party to help educate their staffs and consumers on the latest technologies regarding this purpose.
